Ladybug's Doodles Days and Nights

Here we are with a Dewey's Read-A-Thon update. :D  I am having fun trying to get through my Dickens pick.  :D  It is going slow, but I am steadily working on it.

Total pages read: 400 in Little Dorrit; I don't know how many pages are in the Westerns.

Time I have Spent Reading: 5hrs
What I am Currently Reading: STAR GATE by Andre Norton and LITTLE DORRIT by Charles Dickens
Books I have Finished: BILL CAREY RIDES WEST/THE TOWN NO GUNS COULD TAME by Louis L'Amour (Two Audio Dramatizations of short stories by L'Amour
Blogs I have Visited: about 10, I have been more reading than visiting the 5 hrs working on my reading. :D  

The Mid-event survey time:

1. What are you reading right now?

Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens and Star Gate by Andre Norton

2. How many books have you read so far?

I have finish two books actually, since I am counting the Louis L'Amour CDs.  I am working on others.

3. What book are you most looking forward to for the second half of the Read-a-thon?

I am really looking forward to finishing Little Dorrit and Casting the Runes by M.R. James

4. Did you have to make any special arrangements to free up your whole day?

I have been unable to free up the whole day.  I was able to listen to audio books as I was doing other things though. :D  I think that will count?

5. Have you had many interruptions? How did you deal with those?

Any interruptions, I just dealt with them and tried to finish as quickly as possible.

6. What surprises you most about the Read-a-thon, so far?

Nothing so far

7. Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next year?

I really am unable to usually come up with suggestions when asked.  It is usually when unasked that I give suggestions. :D

8. What would you do differently, as a Reader or a Cheerleader, if you were to do this again next year?

I would try to free up more time, I guess

9. Are you getting tired yet?

Nope. I'm wide awake still.  Ask me in about 5 hours though. :D

10. Do you have any tips for other Readers or Cheerleaders, something you think is working well for you that others may not have discovered? 

Nope, nothing yet


  1. You are doing great! I hope those eyes stay open as the hours pass.

  2. I am impressed that you can read Dickens during Readathon- that's quite a feat (especially for someone like me who picks graphic novels and kids books :)

    Pile those books up ceiling high
    pick one, read one, all night long
    No matter what you choose to read,
    In Readathon rules there is no wrong!
